I was at the game.......first half they played very defensively (well I might add) but did not have much appetite to attack.....seemed comfortable to sit back and limit the damage as they were against the wind.....they really should have scored a goal in the first half.......Cork's first goal was a disaster from Derry......Keeper took it short, did not find the man and the Cork forward easily put it in the net....their second goal was also a farce.....referee let them take a free quickly and Derry were stood still!  Were not expecting it......we only played with one man up first half......Second half......Cork forwards began to get through our lines more easily and were the better team.......despite being behind we did not show much urgency going forward.....when we were about 9 points down with maybe 10 mins to go.....we put 3 men up front and began to push forward.......scored 2-3 or so.......could have nicked the game in the end but overall Cork were the better team....I cannot understand Gallagher talking about the lack of desire to go forward in the team.....he is the manager !!!!  If he wants them to push on then he should set up that way and shout at the players......only seen that in the last 10 mins of the game.....

With Cork and Down almost certain to be promoted to Division Two of the National Football League and Fermanagh and Clare possible candidates to be relegated  to Division Three, what are the chances of the initial 2020 Tailteann Cup decider  being  a repeat of the 1947 League final between Clare and Derry?

Unfortunately league placings do not lie and until Derry produce tall, top quality and mobile midfielders   a Taillteann Cup success is the only realistic target for this year and maybe beyond.(Sadly our two potentially best midfielders, Conor Glass and Calum Brown, are playing in the AFL).

However, like Down who were decidedly unlucky not to be promoted last year, Derry can with a settled team make a more concerted and sustained effort for promotion next year.Lessons can surely be learned from the dropping of a valuable home point against Leitrim and the failing  to put  Down away  in the last ten minutes in this year's encounter in Newry.

In the meantime Derry's remaining two League games against Longford and Offaly should be played with championship intensity.This would be ideal preparation for the Ulster championship match against Armagh in Celtic Park in mid May. It would be a major boost if Enda Lynn,Michael McEvoy, Karl McKaigue,Niall Holly and Jack Doherty were fully fit by then.

Very good result for the hurlers today. No reason why we can’t beat Down and move on. They are delightful to watch.

Never good to react to the Tone’s hurling “knowledge”!

Is that the fella the Derry minor manager at the time said he would need to be used as an impact sub because he wasnt athletic enough for a full game????

One upside of the self isolation is less Tyronies coming over the border and less interaction in general ... every cloud!!
